My favorite things to cook
Good southern comfort food, Mexican, Greek, Italian, Moroccan, anything involving bacon or cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was lucky enough to inherit 3 - 75 year old cast iron skillets, 2 sets of wedding china, 2 sets of heirloom cookbooks and recipe cards, pitchers, and a pastry blender from my own and my husband's grandmothers. There is no better cooking tradition than using those items every single day for the people I love.
My cooking triumphs
Pig candy-wrapped Thanksgiving turkey. Swooning abounded.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at fried chicken when I was 17. It was so bad the frying pan had to be thrown out, too!
